  1. 5 sata drive power (jdob) is needed?


    Hello everyone,

    My goal is to run 5 external mechanical drives on a 5:1 sata multiplier for jdob and allow windows 10 storage space to handle Raid. This will be done by laptop, and I am looking for a small footprint. I would think a PC power supply is ideal, but large. A wall wort would be insufficient and unreliable.

    What would be the power needs for this?
    Or a product just for sata power that can handle 5 drives.
    I know I can buy a 5 way splitter cable. But as other posts have stated that if all drives return from standby mode to an active state. The power consumption is at its highest and my cause amperage drops resulting in drive issue.

    :)

  2. SATA DVD-RW Drives

    Hey Guys,

    So, I finally just bought my new rig: EVGA A1 Mobo (w/ 6 SATA Slots), 2 WD Raptors (SATA - Gonna RAID 0 Boot), 4 Seagate 320GB Barracuda's (SATA - Gonna RAID 5 Storage).
    However, I realized I also bought 2 DVD-RW drives, in SATA *Eek! 5 sata drive power (jdob) is needed? :eek: not enough SATA ports on the mobo...

    So a couple of questions follow:
    1) Is SATA really faster for DVD-RW drives than IDE?
    2) Is there anyway to Inline/Series the (2) SATA DVD-RW drives, kinda like you do with IDE (Master/Slave)?
    3) Are there any SATA-->IDE reverse adaptors (not the opposite, I know those exist)?
    4) Based on the above answers, should I:
    • a) Get a PCI-E SATA RAID Card to Handle One of the RAID Arrays, and keep the DVD-RW drives as SATA? (although those are dang expensive, AND I don't know where that PCI Card is gonna fit - got an 8800gtx, PCI Slot-Cooler, Wifi card... an extra slot but no room down there)
    • b) Return the DVD-RW SATA drives and get (2) IDE DVD-RW drives?
    • Another option that won't require me spending a lot of money?
    Eesh, I'm kinda stuck on my build if I don't have a CD Drive to read from for Windows Install(I don't have any extra ones sittin around - and I want to install my RAID 5 Storage array right away)

    Suggestions?*Confused 5 sata drive power (jdob) is needed? :confused:

    W10 x64 Sudden Computer Power Off

    Hi there,

    Do you know if you can try another sata port on the motherboard?

    If this is a complete power loss issue then it sounds hardware related and I would approach the troubleshooting in steps, test sata port, cable, hard drive, PSU, motherboard

    If this is windows rebooting I would suggest a full reinstall of Windows first to see if this resolves following by a replacement hard drive as that could have been damaged by the power loss
